Investigative Selfism? What’s That?

I know, it’s a weird name for a website. Let me explain it:

It’s like investigative journalism but looking inwards.

More specifically, It’s my platform with various resources that can make our lives – unlike the title of this damn website – less complicated.

But only if we seek that meaningful change.

Are There More Dimensions to Our Liberation?

Could there be more dimensions to our liberation?
This was the question that came to mind as I was watching an interview with ALOK.
ALOK (Alok Vaid-Menon) is a writer, public speaker, and artist whose very existence seems threatening to some.
Why? You’ll see it in this interview.

The Power of Good Questions

When how to express our needs is never taught, and a direct question is considered rude, learning how to ask for what we need is no small task.
So how do we start asking better questions? How do we empower ourselves and cut through confusion in conversations with others?

Are You Using Anger As a Fuel?

When times are worrisome (I do mean politics, yes!), we have to be careful not to turn to anger for fuel and not to confuse hatred with a measure of care.

Don’t miss a post!

Who am I to be sharing these resources?

My name is Justina and I have started this project in 2011 first as a (young person’s:) travel blog. But then – oh no! – it has quickly turned into “general and weird observations on life”, stories that focused on discoveries and not so much on geography.

More recently, I’ve turned it into a platform where I share the resources that I myself find insightful, something I wish I had discovered earlier, and something that I want all of my friends to know about.

This desire to embark on a journey inwards partially comes from a very simple realisation:

That I can continue hopping continents and feel all excited about that (coz it IS exciting!), but if I don’t put in the inner work, I’ll be bringing all the same old habits, limiting beliefs, and weak boundaries with me. And I never want to travel that heavy.

(and yes, it’s my mom and me in this photo on one of our investigative trips; she’s here to add some cuteness!)
